Subject: Nice.
(I give it only 3 stars because the first half isn't as action-packed as the second half.)

This movie was both great and not too good. The story was a little limp. Gloria Swanson was both brilliant and a little wimpy. Her singing was wonderful. I very much enjoyed this movie even though sound from somewhere bled into it a couple of times. The sound wasn't great to begin with but the print is good and you can hear clearly almost everything. A great addition to the archives. I would love more of Gloria Swanson's soundies and silent films.

I had always thought she was a silent starlet but evidently I was wrong. I don't know how her hair got longer and shorter so quickly in this one, but then I'm not a stylist either. She was convincing at times and somewhat phony at others. In the dramatic parts she seemed much better than in the comic parts of the movie.
This particular take has some nasty gaps and sound bleeding over from somewhere that just doesn’t match, but it's still an OK flick if you like romance mush. MUSH..bah-humbug..but the movie's still OK even if it's all mush.
